Venus On Taurus 29: Two Cobblers Working Together
The Sabian Symbol for Venus is Taurus 29: TWO COBBLERS WORKING SIDE BY SIDE AT A TABLE
Without wanting to get all religious or airy fairy, I feel to mention that one of my favourite people, the fabulous Walter Russell – who has been compared to Leonardo Da Vinci for his brilliance – was born with this degree as his Sun (and, possibly, his Moon – he was born on the new Moon on this degree)... he wrote in his book The Secret Of Light (published in 1947)…
God is light. God is Universal Mind. Mind is Light. Mind knows…
When man and God thus work together they commune one with the other as
One Person. The language of their communion is the language of Light which man calls “inspiration.”
When man works alone, his works are as the winds which blow. When man works with God as co-creator, his works are forever enduring.
Every great genius manifests this law: that he is One with the God- Mind, that God in him is the source of every thought and that he is inspired by that omniscience and omnipotence within him which make his work enduring.
Russell left school at the age of nine and was a genius – a master – at everything he did. An amazing human being. With Venus on his Sun, I feel to celebrate him and to show what he thought about creating. He said that he always always worked with God sitting by his side at his work bench… God is light. God is Universal Mind. Mind is Light. Mind knows…
‘Cobblers’ are those who work to fix up issues to do with the ‘sole’ – the ‘soul’ – the feet represent issues of ‘understanding’… repairs to understanding… (thanks to Dane Rudhyar for that inspiration).
I mention the above especially for those of us who work ‘alone’… we seemingly plug along without help, without others being there… the following is my shortened interpretation from the Solar Fire files…
This Symbol shows people working together, getting along in a partnership and making something of their lives through cooperation. To get the result you want you will probably need to work cooperatively with someone of equal skill and similar interest. Finding a partner with similar skills can give life a lift and lessen your own work load. Two or more people can bring not only their special talents but also their individual tools and perspectives. By sharing the task without ego or competition the outcome is not only better, but more harmonious and satisfying.
People sharing quietly and persistently in their labor. Partnerships and sharing. Repairs to the soul. Reflexology. Work benches. Demarcations of work. The marriage of minds.
The Caution: Wanting to complete a task with shared responsibilities yet gain all the credit. Committing oneself to tasks that don’t bring personal satisfaction. Codependence.
